   Former Stanford star Mallory Burdette, recovering from surgery on her right (playing) shoulder in November, dropped another 30 places to No. 318 in the world in this week's rankings.
   Burdette, 23, missed last week's Italian Open after losing in the first round there as a qualifier in 2013. She hopes to return to the circuit late this year.
   The 5-foot-10 (1.77-meter) Burdette turned pro after reaching the third round of the 2012 U.S. Open, forgoing her senior year, and shot up to a career-high No. 68 last June. 
   At Stanford, Burdette won NCAA doubles titles in 2011 and 2012 (with Hilary Barte and Nicole Gibbs, respectively) and lost to Gibbs in the 2012 NCAA singles final.
